Wee jog round the block to see how I was feeling. No better than yesterday but no worse either

shoes: Inov 8 X-talon 212 #4

The track early on was quite icy with very little good surface so went off quick to get some space. Nobody came with me at first so had a wee gap over Doug and Steve Feltbower as I went onto the hill. Found the snow quite tough going and they both got onto the back of me. Doug nipped past after the first top and worked hard up to the three brethren with Steve behind me chatting away and Doug a wee bit ahead. After the initial descent things got quite tough with some really deep snow. Bit of route confusion meant Doug stretched his gap a little more and the chasing pack gained some ground. Descending well and hit the steep climb up Foulshiels a bit behind Steve. Climbing well. Descent off here was tough with a lot of deep snow. Comfortable gap behind and not catching Steve so eased off a little on the icy trail to be safe. Wee bit of trouble breathing here after feeling decent during the race. 3rd in the end. About a minute down on Steve and another minute or so on Doug.

Happy and glad I raced. With the conditions today at a lot of points legs struggling in the snow was the limiting factor rather than how I was feeling aerobically which will have been a good thing with a cold. Hopefully won't suffer for it.

Cold has definitely hit. Ok in the morning but getting a bit worse after uni. Hopefully it doesn't get any worse. Race has been shortened on Sunday as well due to loads of deep snow on the route. Shortened route still has the main two climbs but added some more road/trail in. Most of the descending is on a big landrover track as well now. Suits me

Hill Running 34:48 [2] 4.34 mi (8:01 / mi) +195m 7:02 / mi

Woke up a bit snotty. Warmed up for hill reps and did the first few but chest was quite tight. Felt like I probably could have pushed through but being careful with race at the weekend (assuming its not too snowy to get there!)

Fun hill run in the snow with Jonny. First climb up Allermuir into the wind was a bit unpleasant but better after that

2X10', 1X5' with 2 min recovery round the research park. Chest getting a little tight at the end of the 2nd so shortened the last one. Being sensible before FtB this weekend. Feeling pretty good. 5:51,5:53, 5:46 paces. Not bad given the conditions. Thankfully most of the pavements had just been cleared but still a couple of icy bits. Dropping Niall on the first two and he powered on ahead on the last one
